Raspberry!
Poured from tap into 16 oz plastic cup. What little head there was dissipated immediately. The top of the beer surface remains embossed with the pour, lending character and richness of body. What head remains is lace in the meniscus.
Darkly translucent. Even bright lights nearby don't shine directly though yet it's a terrific burnished copper color,
As noted before, there's complexity to the flavor, with little malt/breadiness, a bit of resin, and a good dose of dry fruitiness. Somehow I'm picking up raspberry from the taste and scent, I won't complain.
Savannah tells me that BxB has a good distributor, and can be found even at Madison Sq Garden - kudos to them!
Next time I'm in the area, I'll be sure to stop back in!

Had an imperial pint at Jimmy's No 43 with my BBQ tacos. Nice pairing, the beer reminds me a lot of Bear Republic's Hop Rod Rye for the way the spicy rye blends in with the citrus hops. This beer is a little tamer, however, and is a fine beer fill up a 20 oz. pint glass with. It lacks more of the thick toasty malt from the regular pale ale, and effectively leans more toward the hops. Cool beer, give it a try.

On-tap at Keg & Lantern, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that quickly died down, leaving some patches of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sweet caramel malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of caramel malts but isn't sweet because the malts are contrasted by spicy flavors from the rye.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has a good balance between the malts and rye.

Served on-tap at the Keg and Lantern in Brooklyn, NY

A: Pours a crystal clear medium copper-ish amber in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass and some faint burnt orange highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall foamy off-white head that reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of caramel malts with lighter aromas of rye spiciness and a moderate amount of citrus/grapefruit hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of caramel malts with just a hint of sweetness and moderate flavors of rye spiciness. That is followed by moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit hops and some lighter flavors of herbal hops all of which impart a moderate amount of bitterness which fades away fairly slowly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of dryness int he finish.

O: This beer was really enjoyable because there was just enough rye spiciness in the flavor and aroma to differentiate it from a regular IPA but not so much as for the rye to dominate all of the other flavors. I found it to be fairly easy to drink and it hid the alcohol rather well.

From 10/06/12 notes.

a - Pours a murky bright orange color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells rye, citrus hops, grapefruit, fruity malts, bready malts, toasted malts, and some earthy notes. Rye is strong, as is the citrus. Pretty nice.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, rye, pine, grapefruit, fruity malts, toasted malts, and bready malts. Little less rye than the nose, and a little bit of bitterness from the hops.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink and not much alcohol coming through

o- Overall a pretty good beer. I've yet to have their normal pale ale but wanted to seek this out, and enjoyed it quite a bit. I agree with the person who compared it to BR's Hop Rod Rye as it is easy to drink and a nice mix of rye and citrus hops. Worth checking out if you're a rye beer fan.
